    I was looking in to a getting a new car and Maloy was assisting me. I found the car I wanted but I had to go to work, Maloy said he would get all the information... together and call me when I could come purchase the vehicle. I waited one week for him to contact me he never did when I finely got ahold of someone they sold the car I was interested in they Day I called. Because he never contacted me like he said I missed out on the car I wanted DONT TRUST MALOY to do anything for you. Save your self some time and go elsewhere!

    We bought a 2015 Lincoln MKZ and it was the easiest car buying experience i've Ever had. We were a little off on what we owed on our trade in and I wasn't... going to roll anything over on the new loan, they gave me what we owed and even got me a better interest rate than what I already was pre approved for. Three days after we had the car the rear brakes started grinding, I replaced them and they sent me a check to cover the parts which they didn't have to. I would definitely purchase another vehicle from them!

    This was our first experience with Autotown! My wife and I were looking to replace her car which was becoming too costly to fix. My wife spent many hours... researching cars and prices and we visited several dealerships before my wife found the advertisement online for a 2018 Jeep Renegade with low miles and fully loaded! I have to be honest, I was a little apprehensive at first of going to not only a smaller dealership, but one we were both unfamiliar with! In the past we had dealt with large, multi-brand dealerships but, we were quickly put at ease after meeting Maloy, Mike and Luna the dog! We felt no pressure, Maloy was very knowledgeable about the car and the whole process went much quicker than past experiences at other dealers! My wife and I are extremely pleased with our purchase and will definitely remember this place when it's time to replace a car!

    Number one place to buy a car in this state! Maloy just makes you smile every time he talks to you! Not the average car salesman that tries to outsmart... you! He is honest and is there to help you 100%! I will never buy another car from anywhere other than here! The prices are more than fair, and you will get the most out of your trade in. I love Ben and Maloy, and I thank you for your honest work and your amazing prices!

    We purchased a 2009 Tahoe LTZ and the customer service & buying experience with Ben was such a pleasure! Ben took care of all the paperwork while we were... at work to have ready for us afterwards. The vehicle was freshly washed with a Full Tank of gas for us, and he even said we would order and send us the headphone set for our 2 boys to watch the DVD player on road trips!!! Above & Beyond! Thank you for making this purchase seamless and smooth!

    This was my first big purchase, and I couldn't be happier with my experience at Autotown. Ben & Maloy were incredibly friendly and willing to answer any... questions I had about the vehicle I was interested in. They worked with me to find a reasonable price and made the purchase process beyond smooth. Thank you both so much for your kindness and professionalism; Im thrilled with the mustang!

    From the moment my wife and I walked in the door at Autotown we felt comfortable looking for a car. Maloy and Luna, his two year old German Shepard - Lab,... greeted us at the door. Maloy told us from the start that he would help us anyway he could and that he wouldn't be pushy or aggressive when it came time for us to make a decision. I told Maloy upfront that we were only looking around today (Saturday) and that we wanted to sleep on what we saw and then we would make a decision. I also told him that we were looking at other dealerships to see what was available and best for us. He was very understanding and again reassured us that he wouldn't be trying to push us home with a car at the end of the day. We looked at three or four different vehicles while we were at Autotown and test drove one of them; the Chevy Equinox. Maloy was extremely knowledgeable about all of the vehicles we looked at and was able to answer all of our questions. As we left for the day, Maloy thanked us for coming in and gave us his number incase we had anymore questions after we left. We ended up going to a larger, corporate, dealership next and immediately felt uncomfortable and pressured by the salesman to purchase anything that we set our eyes on. I told this salesman the same thing I told Maloy, "We aren't going to buy a car today; we are just our looking and then we want to take a day or two to figure out what is best for us." He then proceeded to ask us why we would even come in to look if we weren't "at least even thinking about purchasing a vehicle today." My wife and I were stuck in this larger dealership for about an hour trying to end the conversation with this salesman that just wouldn't take no for an answer. Once we left, we knew that we wanted the Equinox for a couple reasons. The vehicle was in great condition with low mileage for a great price AND the big reason was because of how we were treated by Maloy and the team at Autotown. I called Maloy back that afternoon and we were able to get the paperwork started and set up a time to come in Monday to sign everything. It was extremely easy working with Maloy and his team. I will recommend this dealer to friends/family and we will be back, in the future, when it comes time to get our next vehicle! Customer service goes a long way with me; Maloy made us feel like he cared about us getting the right vehicle even if it wasn't from his store and that meant a lot and was the main reason we will keep coming back. Finding a great vehicle at an affordable price made the experience even better.
